About Cancer Commons
Cancer Commons aims to provide patients and their physicians with the knowledge needed to make the best possible personalized treatment decisions, and to continuously update that knowledge based on each patient’s response.
Marty Tenenbaum is a renowned computer scientist and cancer warrior. After surviving stage IV melanoma, he set out to create a ‘commons’ to ensure that all cancer patients are treated according to the latest scientific and clinical knowledge.
Our eminent Board of Directors, Advisory Boards, and Editorial Boards include past presidents of ASCO and AACR, editors of Science and JAMA, as well as leading experts in cancer research, drug development, treatment, biocomputation, informatics, ethics, and patient advocacy.
